Hannibal Buress is one of the silliest, smartest, and most distinctive voices in comedy. And those who know that Stand Up! Records cut our teeth on comics like Patton Oswalt, Doug Stanhope, and Maria Bamford, know we don't say that lightly. No, Buress is the real deal. A Chicago native, Saturday Night Live writer, and one of the few black men to make it big in Heeb Magazine, Buress has a peerless deadpan delivery, brilliant timing, and a knack for the nonsequitur. He's got a yen to punt a pigeon, but the street smarts to know the papers are just gonna run with ''Black Dudes Kicking Pigeons!'' the next day. He leans when he texts so it'll come out italic. He daydreams about strangling guys who ask ''Is your name really Hannibal? Like that's on your birth certificate? Like, your parents call you Hannibal?'' just to find out if they'll squawk Are you choking me? With your hands? Are you trying to restrict the flow of oxygen to my brain?'' He single-handedly wrote a jingle for Plan B and called it ''Zygote Killers.'' And yes, Hannibal Buress likes burritos more than Jesus. Because steak burritos are delicious. And they're real. New York Magazine recently named Buress one of their top ten ''Comics to Watch,'' but we think you're gonna want to listen to his first stand-up CD, ''My Name is Hannibal,'' out now from Stand Up! Records, home of fine comedy. And pigeon-kickers.
"If Steven Wright, Mos Def and Dave Chappelle had a baby, that would be disgusting, but it would sound like Hannibal Buress. The funniest young comic I've seen in years." - Chris Rock
